Peyton Hillis Will Be on the Cover of Madden 12...What a Joke

So as you may have heard, they announced the cover of Madden 12 on the horrible and unwatchable show, SportsNation, today and it was announced after a March Madness-style bracket that Peyton Hillis was to be the next cover athlete. Maybe it's just me, but this is a farce.
I've said this before and I'll say it again, I realize that Hillis has epic determination and was the Browns offense last year and is the best white running back since Mike Alstott. But you're telling me that as the face of one of the most popular games of all time, you're gonna have the 11th leading rusher and leading fumbler of the 2010 NFL Season?
But you know what, I think people have failed to forget that Michael Vick is a changed man after murdering those dogs. Yes what he did was an atrocity. But he is a changed man, a reformed man that has realized the faults of his past. Screw the jerkoffs from PETA. Spotlighting a guy that has reformed and has come back stronger than ever after committing terrible crimes is a great thing. This isn't 2007 but 2011. People have to realize that. In no way am I justifying what he did but he has moved on in his life as a different Michael Vick than the one before going to prison.
Now while I would not have liked that Vick would've been a repeat cover, he still deserved it much more than Hillis.
